hi mom!  while, i haven’t updated this blog in a while, i have been busy making things!  don’t worry!

just came across this track this afternoon and thought i’d share it.  i made it a few months ago, before moving, starting Tour de Fat, etc.  it’s something i like and may develop or use for a steinomite song or something.  i dunno.

ok, so roommate drew durepos and i shared an office in our old place… in the living room.  it was tight.  but we did a good job of coordinating our noisy times to work for the other person.  one day i was working at my desk and drew asked to do some guitar practice, which was fine by me.  having been a little rammy anyway and needing a project, i realized that i could record his practice and possibly get a new set of samples out of it.  so i did.

i then went in and grabbed stuff i liked and tried to play with them as musical motives/repeated figures. i’m pretty happy with it!  love the combination of electronic and ambient live instruments in this.

thanks to drew for the awesome riffs!

Big Weekend Update Words

July 15, 2011

hey mom!  i know it’s been a while since i gave you an update using this BLOG MONSTER, so i thought i would do exactly that!

1 and 2.  Steinomite’s doing well, and he thanks you for asking.  He’s performing this saturday afternoon at 2p in the Le Tigre Tent at Chicago’s Tour de Fat.  it’s a festival thrown by New Belgium Brewing Company promoting their beer, bicycling, conservation, alternative energy, and great awesome fun!  as you know, i’m one of the music directors for the festival.  this’ll be our third one of this tour, and it’s going really well so far!  Steinomite also has a show with the Hüsker Dudes and Dead Rider at the Hideout on August 26th.  only a couple of days later, on August 28th, Steinomite will perform a short set at the Whistler, as part of a night put together by You, Me, Them, Everybody.

boy, that’s a lot!

3.  just last saturday was the release part for Hank Frisco: Galaxy Defender, Episode 2!  mom, remember how you like Star Trek and other science fiction shows?!  This episode is great, and required lots of fun music from me.  chase music, romantic music, villain music, hero music, office music.  among them, one that i really enjoyed writing, was the villain theme for my friend Tim Heurlin, and variations on it throughout the episode.  this was also a fun opportunity to do little variations on the main Hank Frisco theme.  as always, if you or anyone else (Dad?) have questions about the score, i’d love to talk you through it.  below is a link to the episode!  maybe i’ll expand on it in yet another incredibly interesting blog post!

4.  Footnote!  so psyched about how this show it turning out.  major props to Jon and Alicia Reisinger and their team for their awesome work on this show.  the most recent episode, “worried sick”, airs tomorrow night (friday july 15th) on WGN, and can then be viewed at www.fntv.com.  this episode, as well as the “lost and found” and “overstuffed” episodes were scored mostly by me.  drop me a line if you wanna talk about any of this music as well, and check out their facebook page here:  http://www.facebook.com/footnotetv

well, thanks for reading as always mom.  i sure hope you like EVERYTHING i do.

love,

Jonathan

Rap Battle Parts 3 and 4!

November 16, 2010

IT CONTINUES!

Professor A. Day has come back with a response to “four whole seasons.”  she calls it “part of your world” (like in that movie)

and Steinomite has responded to “part of your world” with “battle rap for ya” which is a battle rap.  and is the best

It’s a Rap Battle!

October 3, 2010

ATTENTION PLANET EARTH

a couple of weeks ago, an MC from LA called “Professor A. Day” dropped some serious smack on Steinomite and the city of Chicago.

Steinomite was like, “pfff…” and began working on his response, totally chill, cause he’s the best.

now, the response has gone live.  for Chicago.  for Freedom.

1.  something triumphant, but i won’t tell you what it’s for, that’d spoil the suprise

2.  game show theme! (this is played live, but here’s a quick midi version)

3.  theme for the winner of the show!  by myself and mr. tabakin.  (also demo version)

4.  crash!  (foley)

5.  industrial smelting sound design

and these four little guys, that we didn’t end up using in the final version of the show:

those crazy fast rabbits!

father time theme

romance theme
